Hedo Turkoglu hit four 3-point shots for 12 points, four rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench on Monday.
Pardon us if we don't race to the wire to pick him up, as one look at his game log will tell you. If he can revive his career over a longer stretch we'll let you know. After all, Jared Dudley might be as out of shape as O.J. Mayo these days. Feb 24 - 11:09 PM

Hedo Turkoglu (bruised knee) was scoreless with seven rebounds, three assists and one block in 12 minutes vs. the Sixers on Sunday.

Turkoglu was a true game-time decision and his knee isn't yet 100 percent recovered. That didn't matter on Sunday, as he was still able to post a +/- rating of +15 without even attempting a shot in the Clippers' romp over the Sixers. We're taking Turkoglu off the injury report, as he should be ready to go on Wednesday.

Hedo Turkoglu (bruised knee) is listed as day-to-day in advance of Sunday's game vs. the 76ers.

Turkoglu hurt himself in the first half of Wednesday's game and the injury kept him out of both Friday's game and Saturday's practice. Matt Barnes and Jared Dudley will each get a handful of extra minutes if Hedo isn't ready to suit up.

Hedo Turkoglu will not play on Friday due to a bruised right knee.

It was only a matter of time before Hedo missed time after so much time away from the NBA. Turkoglu has no fantasy value and fantasy owners can expect Matt Barnes and Jared Dudley should absorb some minutes.
Feb 7 - 10:58 PM

Hedo Turkoglu played seven minutes in his season debut on Friday night, scoring two points with one board.

He looked like a guy that hasn't played basketball in quite some time. Turkoglu was slow getting up and down the court and it's hard to imagine the Clippers asking him to do much dribbling. He can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.

Hedo Turkoglu will be active for Friday's game against the Knicks.

He shot just 26.4 percent from the field in his 11 games last season, so the bar is set pretty low for the 34-year-old forward. There's very little incentive to picking him up in fantasy leagues.

Clippers sign F Hedo Turkoglu.

Turkoglu is aboard the Clippers plane that is headed to New York, where they will begin a seven-game road trip on Friday. His contract is believed to be for the entire season, but he probably won't have much fantasy value in anything but the deepest of leagues.

Hedo Turkoglu is in L.A. and will sign with the Clippers once he passes a physical, according to Ismail Senol of Turkey's NTV SPOR.

Doc Rivers already tipped his hand about signing Turkoglu, and the contract is believed to be guaranteed for the season rather than a 10-day deal. Owners in deep leagues may want to keep an eye on his role off the Clippers' bench, but he should remain unowned in the vast majority of leagues.

Doc Rivers suggested that the Clippers may soon sign free agent Hedo Turkoglu.

Rivers was impressed by Turkoglu during a workout last week and said the Clippers are looking at him "hard." The veteran forward's ability to handle the ball and pass may be the primary cause of L.A.'s interest, as they look for creative ways to patch over Chris Paul's absence.
Jan 14 - 2:19 PM

Doc Rivers said that free agent Hedo Turkoglu "looked good" during a workout for the Clippers on Thursday, but the team doesn't plan to sign him "anytime soon."

"He made shots from everywhere," Rivers said. "It was a good workout." The Clippers have a full 15-man roster and Rivers said that they may pursue Andrew Bynum, so they're in no rush to roll the dice on 34-year-old Turkoglu.
Jan 11 - 9:15 AM

Coach Doc Rivers confirmed the Clippers are looking at free agent Hedo Turkoglu.

Turkoglu, 34, was waived by the Magic earlier this week. "I just like him," Doc said. "He's out there and we should look at him. I've always liked him. He can shoot and play [small forward and power forward]." The Clippers will kick the tires, but they won't find the player Rivers remembers. If they do make a signing, we wouldn't expect a significant role. The Clips are also rumored to be looking at fellow free agent Sasha Vujacic.

A Clippers representative met with free agent Hedo Turkoglu in Orlando.

The Clippers could use another small forward and it would be a bonus for it to be a guy capable of handling the ball. Turkoglu hasn't looked good on a basketball court for a couple years and would have his work cut out to have fantasy value this season.
Jan 6 - 3:09 PM

Hedo Turkoglu has cleared waivers and is free to sign with any team that wants him, according to Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today.

The Lakers are rumored to be interested in his services. Turkoglu hasn't made a consistent fantasy impact for a few seasons and the 34-year-old should be avoided in standard leagues until we see him suiting up and contributing.
Jan 6 - 12:37 PM

The Lakers "may be interested" in signing Hedo Turkoglu once he clears waivers, according to HoopsWorld's Alex Kennedy.

Turkoglu wants to stay in the NBA and the Lakers might want to add a playmaking forward on a veteran's minimum contract, so there's at least some logic to the pairing. Turkoglu hasn't made a reliable fantasy impact for years and the 34-year-old should be avoided unless we see him on the court and producing.
Jan 5 - 9:33 AM

Magic waive G/F Hedo Turkoglu.

The writing has been on the wall for the entire season and the move became official today. Turkoglu is 34 and he shot just 26.4 percent in his 11 games last season. There have been some great memories of Hedo through his career, but his playing days in the NBA might be over.
